4 Great Pantone Fall 2017 Colors for Home Design

4 Great Pantone Fall 2017 Colors for Home Design

It’s no surprise that 3 of our 4 top picks for home design in the Pantone Fall 2017 collection are neutral tones. 

We’ve been touting neutrals as “the new dominant tones” in home design for the better part of 2017, and this fall’s collection is no exception. In recent articles, we’ve surveyed the entire Pantone Fall 2017 color palette (for “New York”), and given you five great color combinations to inspire your autumn designs.

When it comes to home design, we have the luxury of leaning on our parent company Peter Salerno Inc. for advice and direction. Since 2002, Peter Salerno Inc. is the most award-winning North American custom kitchen and bath design firm. Their blend of “old-world” craftsmanship and innovative state-of-the-art design, as well as their ability to create traditional and transitional award-winning designs, has made Peter Salerno Inc. a must-watch design firm for over 20 years.

As we perused recent kitchen and bath design photos from Peter Salerno Inc. projects, we came across a theme we loved. Like any great designer, Peter Salerno does not mimic trends – rather, he is inspired by them. As such, you won’t see a Peter Salerno Inc. design “coated” with the colors of the season. Instead, the Pantone Fall 2017 collection serves as inspiration for a holistic design approach.

Notes of Neutral Gray, Marina, Butterum and Autumn Maple weave their way through the design photos below, serving as parts of each design but never the whole.

We absolutely adore Neutral Gray for its versatility and its lack of “gray drabness”. It’s an eye-popping neutral tone that works beautifully in appliances, backsplash tile, flooring, wall paint, and decor accessories alike. The same holds true for the brown neutrals Butterum and Autumn Maple.

For a pop of color, we leaned on Marina (Pantone 17-4041), a bright oceanic blue that sits in line with other recent blue Pantone selections like Riverside and Niagara – albeit much warmer than both of those color options.

Enjoy our picks (and accompanying design photos from Peter Salerno Inc.) for the best Pantone Fall 2017 colors for home design!

HGTV’s Top Summer 2017 Home Design Trends

1. Bright and All White

“An all-white color palette is crisp, clean and refreshing,” says Allie Holcomb King. The main design theme of 2017 continues into summer, with white color design dominating the landscape. The versatility and freshness of whites (and bright neutrals) work brilliantly throughout the home and transition naturally from season to season.

Also, don’t discount your ability to mix-and-match your decor across a broad spectrum of colors as you work with a white background! Using white as the base of your design palette allows you to play with all sorts of fun, interesting color choices in your decor and home accessories. On that note…

2. White Wall + Tertiary-Colored Furniture

A developing theme among top kitchen and living space designers is designing around white walls with tertiary colors, especially in furniture. A “tertiary color” is the result of mixing a primary color with its adjacent secondary color on the color wheel.

The six tertiary colors are yellow-green, blue-green, blue-violet, red-violet, red-orange, and yellow-orange. This palette brings in some natural jewel tones, which pair well with brass and metallic accents and accessories.

3. Small (but Bold) Pops of Color

“Summer brings with it bold flavors, sights and sounds. This year, we’re noticing bold color is along for the ride too,” says Allie. Again, this trend rides the over-arching theme of neutral and white in your primary home design. Instead of splashing color all over your space, try using small pops of bold color around the room for an eye-catching effect.

4. Brass is Back

Brass elements in your decor are back in for the summer of 2017 – but unlike many trends, we believe brass fixtures are relatively timeless. Whether you use brass in your door handles, appliance knobs and handles, or statement accessories, brass is an engaging, warm metallic presence in your home design.

Our favorite places to utilize brass are in kitchen and bath design, where we’ve watched Peter Salerno and his team use them to dramatic effect.
